At Bishop’s, we value outstanding teaching, research and creative expression, and the pursuit of excellence in all that we undertake. We aim to instill the aspiration and determination to excel in our students and in all members of our community.
Our Liberal Education Model ensures that students develop key skills and competencies that will stand the test of time. We are committed to providing experiential learning opportunities for all students that reinforce the relationship between their academic and post-graduation goals. We also support our researchers as they seek to share and disseminate their work through creative and scholarly activities.
To these ends, Bishop’s is proud to have established important partnerships such as:
Since its inception in 2012, the Collectif de recherche sur la continuité des apprentissages en lecture et en écriture (Collectif CLÉ) has brought together research experts from complementary disciplines and from multiple higher-education institutions in the pursuit of original research encompassing continuing education in reading and writing.
English Language and Literature – In-Depth Learning (ELLiL)
Over the next four years, several professors from Bishop’s School of Education are partnering with Nord University’s Faculty of Education and Arts in Norway to develop the study of the English language as a window of opportunity for creative literature and language education.
Estrie Higher Education Hub – Pôle régional en enseignement supérieur de l’Estrie (PRESE)
The PRESE supports consultation and cooperation among the five college and university institutions in the Sherbrooke area.
Maple League of Universities
The Maple League creates distinctive learning environments that ensure our graduates are capable of navigating an increasingly complex world as citizens and leaders dedicated to the values of a just and civil society.
